Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Barbara Lee spoke on the floor in support of H.R. 5309, the CROWN Act, which passed out of the House. This legislation would make it illegal to discriminate against a person based on their hair texture or style if it’s commonly associated with a particular race or national origin.
